It's Currently November and a Freebie Hop

Soooo..... it's been like 4 score and 7 years since I've blogged.  I'm sorry... please forgive me!  I'm hoping that with a week off in November as well as Christmas break... that I can gear my butt in gear {fingers crossed}  We had the fair here in town week before last... this week was Red Ribbon Week, Halloween, and our Willy Wonka party!  Holy crazy kids, Batman!

OK... so it's currently November.  While I'm surprised... I am also really excited.  I love fall... and I love the holiday season.  Time changes tonight... and Starbucks has started with the red cups... life is GOOD!

I'm linking up with Farley ...  and here goes:

Listening to complete silence.  Boys went to a movie with their dad after karate today which gave me a few hours to catch up on laundry, eat a quiet lunch, and spend some horizontal time on the couch.

Loving the cooler-ish weather.  Most days lately have been high 70s to mid 80s, but I can tell that it is cooling off.  I don't have to turn on the AC everyday... and that is progress!

Thinking of more way to be gracious to people.  I am trying to be not so random with my acts of kindness... but very deliberate and more consistent.

Wanting my 2nd Stitch Fix box to come.  I had my first one in September and it was so very cool to get a box of clothes delivered to my door.  I only kept 1 shirt last time, but I left really good feedback and am really optimistic with this 2nd box coming.  Have you signed up yet?  It really is a nifty idea!  You fill out a style profile, they select clothes they think fit your profile and mail them to you.  You pick out what you want and pay online... anything that you don't want just gets mailed back to them in a prepaid package!  Easy peasy!  Click HERE to check it out!

Needing to think about our Christmas card for this year.  I didn't send a Christmas card last year.  If you have followed my blog for any length of time you probably know that I found out right before (6 days) Christmas last year that the baby I was carrying did not have a heartbeat and would need to be delivered.  Needless to say Christmas was a blur... I don't even remember what presents I bought for the boys.  I am hoping that I can redeem it this year... so I am excited about Christmas since I didn't really have one last year.  Now... to get my boys to cooperate for a card worthy picture...
A yummy pin.... yeah.... I love pinning and my NomNomNom board on Pinterest overflows with food ideas.  Have I ever told you that I met my husband at a restaurant that I managed in college... and he's a food salesman!?!?!  We love {like puffy heart} food!  I found this picture last week from  Simply Delicious... and let's just say... it's at the top of my list of things to make when the weather drops in the 60s here!  I have a thing for comfort foods!  Do you follow me on Pinterest yet?  Click HERE to find me!  Click the yummy picture below to go straight to the Simply Delicious Blog!
In other exciting news...  I am participating in a Facebook Freebie hop with some of my first grade homies for the next 2 days.  If you like me on Facebook then you can grab one of my persuasive writing packs... then hop onto the next Facebook page for even more goodies!  You can find me HERE to start hopping!
I also need new blogs to follow...  leave me a comment below if you have a blog that I definitely need to be stalking reading !  Hope y'all will have a FAB Sunday..... talk to y'all soon!
